So obviously I couldn’t resist. My curiosity about how the variegated yarn I bought recently would work up into crocheted granny squares got the better of me and I had to make a few blocks, using the various colours I’d bought. They turned out better than I expected (all credit to the yarn) and are so quick and easy to make, there should be no excuses for this project turning into a long-term one. Well, in theory anyway.
Other than that, it’s been a busy week of wearing many hats – copy editing a couple of days at the online newspaper for which I do freelance work, baking biscotti to fill an order (I supply a home industry shop across the road with the odd batch of biscotti, but this was a personal order) and working on the new embroidery designs I’ve got coming up for you.
On top of that, I’ve woken up this morning to rain! And I ended that sentence with an exclamation mark because rain at this time of year is unusual where I live – thanks Cape Town, for sending us your wet, wintery weather. But I do love rain, so no complaints. It’s perfect weather for a cosy and relaxing public holiday (crocheting some more blocks). So even if you don’t live in South Africa, Happy Women’s Day.
